Nanotechnology Minor

The Nanotechnology minor is an interdisciplinary program that provides students with foundational knowledge and skills related to the emerging field of nanotechnology, including hands-on experience in several major areas of nanotechnology, such as synthesis of nanomaterials, nanoscale imaging, nanostructure assembly and manipulation, device and system integration, and performance evaluation. The Nanotechnology minor draws faculty expertise and coursework from the College of Engineering and the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences and utilizes state-of-the-art equipment and facilities at the Institute for Nanoscience and Engineering. The Nanotechnology minor is intended to prepare participating students for a career in which nanotechnology is playing an increasingly important role, and increase students’ research competitiveness for graduate studies. The Nanotechnology minor is designed to be accessible to students majoring in engineering, physics, or chemistry and biochemistry. It is open to all students who have the necessary prerequisites to enroll in the courses that constitute the minor.
